When it comes to RVs, pop-up campers are the most budget-friendly option for you. Especially if you are only going camping a few times a year. Full-size trailers have more features but they are more expensive, and if you are not traveling often, it can be a waste to go that big. You can get a pop-up at a fraction of the cost. And because they cost less to start, they’re cheaper to insure.

Being more affordable doesn’t mean they are lower in quality. A pop-up camper can last up to 15 years. When you look at the average lifespan of other vehicles (8 years for a car, 10 years for a trailer, and 20 years for an RV), this is not too bad. The lifespan of the camper will be directly related to how well you maintain it, With regular upkeep, you can get up to 15 years out of a pop-up camper.

You also do not have to worry about missing out on some features. For smaller pop-up campers, many people want to know if they come with bathrooms. There are two different types. Some pop-up campers do come with a bathroom. You just have to know where to look. The good news is that we are here to help and have the best pop up campers for you to look through right here.
